I am a 40 something year old Social Care Worker living in County Kerry, Ireland. I'm interested in reading, writing, politics, sport, film and blogging.

“It was while bent over, trying to breathe through the pain of bruised ribs, with the sensation of spit running down his cheek that Jason decided he was going to die.”
Paul W.S. Bowler, Blue Eyeshadow

“Haftor was the Easer to the Easers. This was the most powerful man in Creation. Peder knew trouble was coming, but knew not what it was or how to deal with it.”
Paul W.S. Bowler, The Easers

“No queen has had to fight an insurrection in half a millennium. And she takes it personally. But it was her fate to be a good queen that followed four poor ones”

“I am to die steeped in treasonous guilt, my name cursed, my memory unmourned and my service to The Kingdom blotted from history.”
Paul W.S. Bowler, The Bucket

“This, for Homer, is the tragedy of being human: to desire freedom, and be tortured by a sense of autonomy, and yet be imprisoned by forces beyond our control.”
Kenan Malik
